Dark Souls Remastered: Last Chance To Download Network Test

The network test client will be removed from PS4 and Xbox One's stores on May 8.


Ahead of Dark Souls Remastered's release later this month, Bandai Namco will hold a network beta test for the game on PS4 and Xbox One. The test takes place this weekend, but those hoping to participate in it only have a little more time to grab the required client before it is removed from PSN and Xbox Live.

The Dark Souls Remastered network client is available to download for free from both console's respective digital stores, but it won't be around for much longer. The client will be de-listed from each storefront at 11:59 PM PT on May 8 (2:59 AM ET on May 9). After that point, players will no longer be able to download it, so if you'd like to participate in the network test, you need to download the client while you still can.

Now Playing: Dark Souls Remastered PS4 And Xbox One Network Test Dates Announced - GS News Update

The test will be held on May 11 and May 12 and runs for approximately six hours each day, from 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET to 11:59 PM PT / 2:59 AM ET. PS4 players can grab the client here, while Xbox One owners can download it from here. Those planning to play on Xbox One will need to have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription, while all PS4 owners will be able to participate. The test takes place in the Undead Parish and allows players to summon partners or invade someone else's game.

Dark Souls Remastered launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25. Along with higher resolution visuals, it features a number of quality-of-life changes over the original version. The game costs $40 on each platform, but Steam users who have purchased Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will get a 50% discount on Remastered.

Dark Souls Remastered is also coming to Nintendo Switch; however, that version has been delayed to Summer 2018. As a result, Bandai Namco has also postponed the Switch network test to sometime this summer.
